    after posting what i did, anti pulleys and ive gotten a bit more feedback from people who use them.. apparently the GT2 profiles for belts are good and accurate (actually probably more accurate than using the couplings that i have at least)dont know what your setup is. i might well personally give it a go.. will get back with the results when i do.

    I am planning to belt drive my Y-Axis purely because of the space issue. I dont want the motor sticking out that far. I'm not worried about it on the X-Axis though. Hopefully I will get the motor and bearing mount machined today and assembled. I will post some pictures on my build log if I get it done.
